14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A mother leopard and cub meet on a branch for a snuggle.
I was thrilled to be able to witness this tender moment between a leopard mother and her cub. This cub didn't have any siblings, so his mother had to be his mother, protector, comforter, and playmate as well. They seem very content with each other.
